The Ras Al Khaimah Police have arrested a reckless motorist, 21, in less than an hour, for performing dangerous stunts while driving, which led to losing control over his vehicle that flipped over on one of the emirate’s roads.
This came after a video, which went viral on social media, showing the young man driving his 4X4 car recklessly before a large number of people.
Captain Abdulrahman Ahmed Al Shehhi, Director of Investigation Section at the Traffic and Patrols Department, said, “The video went viral in a few hours on social media, showing a person performing dangerous stunts in non-civilized manner, in front of a large number of people.”
He continued, “A security team was entrusted to identify and seize that driver as soon as possible, and that the team was able to arrested and seize the car in less than one hour.”
The driver has been referred to the competent authorities to take further legal actions against him for his unaccepted act, Captain Al Shehhi added.
He called on the public to refrain from such reckless behaviors, which could lead to loss of life and property, and not spread such videos through social networking, and instead reporting them to the operation room, asserting that such acts harm and disturb society.
